Gold's Gym International (GGI) and the Gold's Gym Franchisee Association (GGFA) today announced two key system-wide initiatives that will have a significant impact on the organization in 2009 and beyond. First, GGI and the GGFA have formed a task force to jointly create a group purchasing program which will replace the current national vendor program. Second, the two have made a commitment to work together to plan, implement and host the 2009 Gold's Gym Convention this summer in Las Vegas.
In the days ahead, the task force responsible for the group purchasing program will be considering how procurement processes and systems will function. In addition, they will lay out the purchasing arm's organizational structure and will make personnel decisions.
